Do you know what it’s like to be a god?
Because that’s what you are.
You are the creator of your universe.
You’ve already met your maker 1000 times over – just by looking in the mirror.
You’re the master of the ship you choose to sail and you’re every iceberg.
But you’re also nothing.
You’re nothing more than this second, this moment, this breath.
You don’t exist in the past or the present because those things don’t exist either – they’re the imaginings of a wayward mind.
And the imaginings in your head are only for you. No one else can ever experience them.
In that – you’re completely alone.
Maybe you’re lonely too, but that’s not a prerequisite of being alone – that’s a choice as well.
You’ve created it all – the chaos, the karma, the lonely and the love.
So tell me – doesn’t that make you a god?
I very strongly believe in the power we have as individuals to create and control our destinies.
You, and you alone, are responsible for creating your life.
Whether you believe in a higher force or believe in absolutely nothing, you should at least – I can’t believe I’m going to fucking say this – believe in yourself.
You are the cause, the conflict and the cure for every part of your life.
If you can just learn to take a modicum of responsibility for that you will be amazed at the new course you can chart.
You choose your thoughts and your actions – in fact this is all you choose. Everything else is utterly irrelevant in that it is completely out of your control.
So are you willing to become the creator of your own damn life?
Tell me how you’re creating your life at firstname.lastname@example.org.
